Did you experience the hugely popular Imagine Van Gogh exhibit? Well, guess what? The designers who created that show-stopping experience are back with another master’s work. Imagine Picasso brings together 200+ pieces of his work. The immersive art experiences created by the Imagine-team truly need to be experienced to be understood. I saw countless pictures of Imagine Van Gogh over the Spring, but it wasn’t until I stood amongst the 7 metre screens and was enveloped by the moving classical music, that I “got it”.
Imagine Picasso brings paintings from his Blue and Rose periods together with his Cubism works, which are the more well-known pieces he created. Picass is believed to be one of the most prolific artists of all time, producing more than 65,000 pieces of art ranging from paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, and ceramics.
The display screens for Imagine Picasso are inspired by the paper sculptures Picass made for his children. Nine origami-style instilations project the more than 200 pieces featured in this exhibit.
